TRAILER: THE CAMPAIGN – Offensive to Southerners?
“With the general presidential election in full swing, we’ve already seen both skirmishes between the two sides, and it doesn’t seem like the dialogue could get much sillier than one where dogs and cookies are fair game. That is, unless you were to compare Obama and Romney to Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis, the stars of the upcoming movie “The Campaign,” a comedy about a Southern election for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
In a new video featuring campaign ads for Cam Brady (Ferrell) and Marty Huggins (Galifianakis), the candidates (whose respective political parties are never mentioned, at least in this video) hit the same notes as real campaigns: Cloying seriousness, outrageous claims about patriotism, and meaningless buzzwords meant to evoke responsibility. But the Hollywood version is much, much funnier.”
I don’t think this video is funny at all. I actually think it’s pretty offensive.
What do you think?!
